A Little Clarity Goes A Long Way

Clarity is Key to Empowerment

All of us want to feel empowered.  There is much talk–most of it bullshit–about stepping into your power, or claiming your power…or reclaiming your power.

What does this mean? It’s become so cliché that it’s really just self-help gibberish! (Please ignore the title of the free giveaway on my newsletter sign-up box in the right hand sidebar of this site…seriously, though, do you see what I mean?)

The modern individual has never been more personally empowered. Yet if this is true, why do so many of us feel so disempowered?

Why do we feel like our life is living us, instead of the other way around?

I’m no different from you!  I’ve struggled with finding meaning for my own life.  In fact, that’s a large part of what this site is about.

But it’s more than that.  It’s about what gives us meaning, and for each of us, the answer to that question is different. But there are some common denominators.

People who are fulfilled in life generally have stronger relationships, strong communication in their relationships, and clarity about where they’re going in life (and why).

Think about it. Whenever you feel disempowered, is it because you really feel uncertain or unsure?  When you have felt demoralized in a specific situation–maybe a career or family situation–is it because you don’t know what the future holds?

The foundation of personal power is clarity

A little clarity goes a long way!

If you feel like you’ve lost–or given up–your personal power, step back and try to gain some clarity.  This simple step will help you immeasurably.

Remember the old Nike slogan, Just Do It?

When I was a kid, this slogan embodied the spirit of the Nike company. Essentially, the slogan connected to the core of what it means to be human–that is, self-determination.

Sometimes, once you gain a little clarity, you have to just step out and move forward…and that’s exactly what I’m doing.

Let me help you, no matter where you are on your journey.

My sense of fulfillment comes from being able to make a difference in your lives, but just like you, it’s easy for me to doubt myself and struggle with my own insecurities.

Recently, I had a moment of real clarity and some internal guidance come to me. It said this: Just do it!

And so I am.

What areas are you seeking clarity in?  I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic in the comments.
